CSI: Miami 05/05/03

Episode Title: 'Tinder Box'

Spoiler:
Speedle and Delko are present when a trendy nightclub catches fire, apparently from a deejay's pyrotechnics display, killing 16 people and injuring dozens of others. But the ensuing investigation reveals it may have been arson to cover up a murder. Also: Horatio probes the death of a prostitute who is found dead in a judge's bathroom in his home.


Huh. Wonder where they got the idea for this episode?

Speaking of....the Providence, RI CBS affiliate is not showing this episode.

The producers claim that this script was already written prior to that tragedy.

Hmm.. They nail both the Baltimore snipers and the RI Fire before they happened. Those CSI Miami writers must be onto something.

I just read about that (that CBS affiliate WPRI-TV was not going to air the episode "Tinder Box", about a fatal nightclub fire.

I buy their story about the Sniper episode. I think a day or two after it began their was talk about that episode.

Their's no way I believe this ep was already in the works. To much time has elapsed between the event in RI and this.

They actually ripped off the DC sniper case in the school shooting episode where the student shooter practiced on a tree in his backyard (just like John Muhammed did in Tacoma months before he made it to the DC area).

I'm pretty well done with the CSI shows.

I was forced to watch this one and I couldn't help laughing when one of the CSI's called 911 to report the fire and Horatio showed up in his hummer to help pull ppl out of the fire before the fire department arrived.

I don't expect reality on crime dramas, but there is only so much i can take.

Good episode last night.

This show's implausibilities and unbelievability are one of the main reasons I watch.

I thought the guest stars were interesting in that they were involved in SciFi series where they were 'lost' .. Ben Browder from FarScape and Chokotay (sp?) (and can't recall the actor's name) from Voyager. Also, with "Crichton" guest-starring, was DJ Scorpius a coincidence?

That you, Harvey?

Robert Beltrane. too bad he only had a 2 minute role
and normally I'm not one to say things like this, but it's a bit early to be using ideas from the Providence fire, which I think they did, I highly doubt they came up with this on their own prior to that

Nothing like Chakotay banging a hooker! He can afford to only do a 2 minute appearance, since he's living off all that Star Trek money.

I do agree, that they probably should've held off with this episode until next season. I don't usually say stuff like that, but it was pretty soon stuff after.

I'm really starting to believe that Caruso has it in his contract that his character must look off into the sunset at the end of each episode.

We were laughing when Horatio ran up to the fire-- where were his sunglasses?

I swear that man does an ad for sunglasses every week.
